6 bottle pack.
The Haut-Médoc is home to some of the most famous Bordeaux names – St Julien, Margaux, Paulliac and St Estèphe. But, surrounding these appellations is where you get some real value, with wines that still retain the fabulous structure and perfume of their more glamorous neighbours.
We've selected two famous names and put them together in a six-pack of real class. You'll get three bottles each of the following wines:
– Chateau Chasse Spleen 2016, Moulis-en-Médoc
The 2016 Chasse-Spleen has a very elegant bouquet with neatly integrated oak, the terroir really showing through here, hints of cedar and smoke emerging with time. The palate is fresh as a button on the entry. It is cut through with a superb line of acidity that engenders superb tension, the tannins firm but fine with a subtle marine influence towards the persistent finish. This is a fabulous Chasse-Spleen, the best I have ever tasted from the estate. (Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate)
– Chateau Cantemerle 2016, Haut-Médoc
An ethereal and evocative claret, neither tub thumping nor light weight. Precision and purity on the nose showing delicate, currant skin, ripe cedar notes and a hint of the lush red fruits with attractive undergrowth scents and a touch of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good depth of fruit, blackberry laced with cedar and graphite. Ripe plum, redcurrant and cassis with just a wee note of herb and aromatic wood. High class and will drink well throughout the 2020s.
